It was 10:54:46 on the 23rd of November that Zoe, the eldest of three osplets hatched on the Port Lincoln nest, fledged. She landed in Dad’s shed!
I included Zoe’s preliminary flapping and hovering. You will also notice that Zoe did a ‘poop shot’.
If you watch raptors, you will begin to notice that before they are going to take off they will lower their heads, do a ps, and then depart. Check it out next time.
So all of the Australian raptors for the 2022 season on streaming cams have now all fledged!
Congratulations to Port Lincoln Ospreys and to Mum and Dad.
